Field trip on Water Purification

Today our children were on a field trip to the mineral water plant at our school to make their learning a lively experience. The children understood the process of how the underground water is changed in to mineral water. They observed how the water from underground is sent through huge pipes with more pressure to the water purifiers which consist of charcoal, lime store (calcium) and pebbles to purify water. The water is purified in 2 stages in the pipes to kill the visible germs, dust and bacteria. After purification the water is sent to the motor which here adds some necessary minerals useful in the water for drinking. In the 3rd stage of purification, the water passes through U.U light where completely invisible dust  particles are killed and in the end, after the purification, the water is supplied to us for drinking.

MONUMENTAL@TUNI

We enriched the students about the monuments. As part of this we visited Raja High school and Mandal Revenue Office, which were built a hundred years ago. Children came to know that the Raja high school was established by Sri Raja Vatsavai Venkata Simhadri Jagapathi Raja Bahaddur on 19th February in 1904.After the death of king in 1911 his wife, queen Smt Raja Vatsavai Venkata Subadrayamma Jagapathi Rani took the responsibility of the school. Our great freedom fighter Alluri Seetha Ramaraju studied in this school. This building was known as tall building and it consists wide class rooms, children observed the huge, strong and unique structure of the monument  and they came to know how this strong building provided shelter for the people during the floods occurred in 1990 when the town was inundated in flood waters.

The Mandal Revenue officer Mr.B.Subrahmanyam and the Deputy Mandal Revenue Officer Mr. Sharif made the children know that it was built by the British. In those days it was used as court and jail. They showed the unique structure and the records preserved from 1921-2016 in an old room in that building. They explained about the Tuni Mandal Map .
